Our Learning: 

Physical Education:

For term 1, we have a focus on Swimming. This is on a Tuesday and Friday. Please remind children to bring their togs, towel and goggles (if needed), all named and in their swimming bag.  


Other helpful information:


Students are required to bring brainfood on a daily basis. These can be raw fruit or vegetables and will be eaten during class time as needed between the start of the day and morning tea time. Please ensure these are manageable by your child. Large pieces can be cut up and placed in a container.

Book bags:

Book bags should be at school every day as they are needed for the safe keep of readers, library books, notices, etc. Parents, please help your children to get into the routine of packing their book bag every day and swapping their readers once they are at school.


Please ensure your child is wearing the correct winter uniform items with black sandals. Name all items clearly with your child’s name. Hats should be worn daily and students are required to enter or exit the school grounds wearing their shoes. These shoes should be worn on the bus at all times.
